Unwrapping the Wrap and Wrapping Up – The Moment of Truth Has Arrived

ItWorks Skinny Wrap Arrived The entire Thanksgiving weekend has been so hectic, that when my package from ItWorks arrived on Saturday, I had to set it aside. It was painful to do, because I was anxious to see what all the skinny wrap craze was about. I’ve done so much research into the product line and read so many personal experiences, but me being the “forever skeptic” that I am, I wanted to see with my own eyes and experience with my own “issues” before I am totally convinced that ItWorks really works.

After getting my husband off to work this morning, I grabbed the package and began unwrapping. Like any good product reviewer, I unwrapped the package and read every insert from beginning to end.

Armed with a wrap, a pair of scissors and my roll of plastic wrap, I headed for the shower. Just like the instructions said, I took plenty of before pictures – all of which REALLY depressed me – but at the same time, made me even more anxious to shower, wrap up, and get right to the results.

That’s exactly what I did.

Unwrapping the Wrap After taking a nice, HOT shower, I opened the wrap. Like many of the reviews I have read, I was prepared for the menthol smell. The wrap was thin and very slimy with a brownish solution. Being OCD, the slimy feel didn’t set well with me so I had a hot washcloth handy to wipe the residue off immediately after application. Once applied, I used the basic, kitchen plastic wrap and fully wrapped my core area to hold the skinny wrap in place.

The product insert suggests leaving the application on for at least 45 minutes, but as long as I don’t feel there is any issue with skin sensitivity, I plan to go the full 7 hours. I went in this to achieve maximum results and that’s what I plan to get.

I will update this post through the application and results of my first wrap throughout the day and over the next 72 hours.

If you have an ItWorks Skinny Wrap experience you’d like to share, I would love to hear or read more about it – please leave your comments in the section below.

For now, That’s a Wrap!


I just completed my very first wrap EVER – I wore it for 7 hours and did everything exactly as instructed. Here are my results! Now I’m anxious to see what happens over the next couple of days as the wrap keeps working after I’ve been unwrapped 🙂

I am officially a BIG Believer!!!!!

I swear on all that is holy and on my kids heads – I am not sucking it in – I did not alter the photos (other than to black out the necessary bits). Since I am right handed, the middle image is the best I could get – but this is me, in all my chubby glory!

    Hi Gayla,
    I can’t believe that I have never heard of this – must be living under a rock. 😉
    That seems amazing – although you were fabulous pre-wrap as well. At this time of year it sure beats dieting!

      Thanks – but working from home and sitting so much really took its toll on me. I kept seeing these images that told me my weight was from sitting too much – but can’t exactly break for an hour at the gym each day. I saw a friend post about it – and she’s not even a distributor. Once I saw her comments and talked to her – I knew I had to try it. I really am glad I didn’t give into skepticism.
